Fusedjaw.com was started as a repository about seahorses and their relatives. Our goal is to share updated, factual information about all members of the syngnathiformes group, such as seahorses, pipefishes, sea dragons, sea moths and the rest of their kin. As the site grows, we hope to accumulate more knowledge of their biology and husbandry, as well as conservation measures to save these animals from extinction.
Seahorses especially, but many of their relatives, are caught around their world for use in traditional chinese medicine, as souvenirs, and in the home aquarium. While legislation has passed and seahorses added to the CITES list under appendix II, many countries which heavily use seahorses have declined to participate. Habitat loss, pollution and climate change also threaten the seahorse and it’s relatives.
Aquarists, researchers, and conservationists alike are fighting to keep these animals alive and available for future generations to enjoy though captive breeding programs, habitat protection, legislation, and education. At Fusedjaw.com, we’re dedicated to furthering those goals by bringing like-minded individuals together to learn and exchange information.
